That's irrelevant to what I said but whatever. Stop harrassing me.
A moderator or administrator addressing your behavior, or in this case, directly answering your questions about actual forum activity
, is not "harassment", and it's beyond absurd to paint it as such. Playing the victim (over literally nothing) is explicitly against the community guidelines, which you agreed to (twice) prior to registration. You will not receive any further free warnings.

I have no clue why I should like Moro and fuck Toyo-tarou for not making that apparent THIRTEEN 45-PAGE CHAPTERS into this story arc.
You know this is not an appropriate contribution. There are better ways to express what you're trying to say in every regard here. If you're not willing to provide worthwhile context for what your opinion is, perhaps toss it out in Twitter's reduced character count and be done with it. This is a place for conversation, not ranting into the wind.
In regard to various folks asking how it's even remotely possible for anyone to like this arc:
I'm really enjoying it. I'd say I borderline love it.
First thing's first: I love the Galactic Patrol. I have since Sachie
, and especially since Jaco
. That said lore is being expanded on and added to makes my day every 21st of the month. I love learning more about how they work, how dysfunctional they are at times, etc.
Yes, many parts of this arc have effectively been re-doings of Resurrection 'F'
; from my viewpoint, that's a good thing, considering how much of a letdown that movie/arc ultimately was. I'll be the first to get in line for knocking things down a peg for redoing things, but what gets redone just works so well for me here. Really love everyone on Earth getting something worthwhile to do (especially having Yamaha involved, as he should have always been).
I think the lore expansion on Dai Kaioshin and what's actually inside Boo is great stuff. I've been super critical in the past of Toyotaro for various "look at me, I paid attention, and I remember things!" (including in this very same arc), and right now we just don't know whether it was him or Toriyama who would have ultimately written that, but I dig it big time.
Speaking of "I paid attention!" call-outs, the reveal of Cranberi having been that one dude on Namek was so great. Probably should have seen it coming a mile away, but that felt like a super cool "tie things together, expand the world, yet somehow also don't shrink the world in the process". Hard to put in words I guess, but it just works for me.
The Merusu stuff was obviously being pretty heavily telegraphed, and I think there are some things I probably would have liked them to do instead of the kinda basic situation (I dunno, are we all just preoccupied with knowing what happened to the destroyed universes and what their angels might be up to?)... but I still like him fine enough. His design (face, hair in particular, etc.) screams 1980s anime designs to me, so I am THE BIAS perhaps.
I dunno, y'all. I just really, really dig the arc. The manga finally feels like a real product telling a real story, doing so on its own time, with a fully realized galaxy out there. I hope we learn some more cool stuff about Moro and his motivations, but even if he winds up being exactly what we see of him now, he'll at least, to me, have been a great backdrop to get some amazing other story beats.
Anyway, comparatively-extremely-old Dragon Ball fan here really loving this arc and its storytelling and its backdrop and its characters, I can at least remotely articulate some of those things I like about it, different people like different things anyway, so please don't assume you have the final word on what is and isn't good.
